Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A in this area. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing rating weighs quite a few factors, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable short-term care grade of C. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
